Hilary Pitts, a Partner at Stephens Scown, has been with the business for 10 years and her particular specialism is Commercial Property.  We were contacted by Stephens Scown recently when a training requirement was identified for some People Management training.

More from Hilary;

"I identified that ‘Mastering People Management’ was a course which I could benefit from, being responsible for younger members within the team and also taking on more management responsibilities.

We looked at courses which were available for this particular training need and also looked at various reviews. This particular course appealed to me given the content and that this matched perfectly what I was wanting to achieve from the course.

The course was well structured and at the right level. The presenter was extremely knowledgeable and involved all attendees.

We were encouraged to give examples of personal experiences within the workplace and these were the focus of discussion as to how difficult situations could be dealt with. We were also provided with examples of good practices.

In terms of outcomes, whilst it is not something which I noted an instant change, it has made me consider my own personal management style and make small changes over time.

I now use the training on a daily basis in all my dealings with people - both within my team and within the firm as a whole".

We run our 'Introduction to People Management' and our 'Mastering People Management' two day training courses several times a year here at our Exeter training venue.   To find out more about either of these courses please click the links below:
